(ZENIT News / Washington, DC, 05.04.2024).- President Joe Biden, a baptized Catholic, sparked controversy when, on Good Friday, he announced that he would designate Sunday of the Resurrection  as an important day in Americans’ life, but not to commemorate Jesus’ death on the cross and then His Resurrection, as Christian do, but to celebrate “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

Biden’s decision to choose Good Friday for this proclamation did not go unnoticed, as many were surprised to see that the President did not mention Good Friday or Easter Sunday in his statement, preferring to highlight the visibility and rights of transgender people instead of commemorating a central event of Christianity.

In his proclamation, Biden said that transgender Americans are an integral part of society and deserve the same rights and liberties as any other citizen. However, some critics pointed out that this affirmation contradicts the freedom of expression and religion of those opposed to the gender ideology.

Biden’s proclamation also condemned those opposed to the orthodoxy of his new state religion, describing the efforts to protect children from the influence of this ideology  as “odious.” This position has been strongly criticized by Republicans and Religious Leaders, who believe that Biden is promoting a divisive agenda that undermines traditional values.

The White House tried to defend the proclamation, arguing that Easter Sunday coincided with Transgender Day of Visibility and that Biden celebrates both evens simultaneously. However, this explanation has not convinced everyone, especially after Biden denied having marked Easter Sunday as Transgender Day of Visibility, in a subsequent statement to the media.

Biden’s decision to issue his proclamation on Good Friday, together with his lack of explicit acknowledgement of the importance of Easter in his declaration, has fanned the flames  of controversy and highlighted the tension between transgender orthodoxy and traditional Christianity in the United States.

Ultimately, Biden’s proclamation shows how the political agenda and gender ideology are increasingly intertwined in the public sphere, which generates divisions and tensions in American society. Meanwhile, Religious Leaders and defenders of children’s rights continue fighting to protect the fundamental values and beliefs that have sustained the nation for centuries.

Trump’s Response

Former President Donald Trump launched a strong criticism against current President Joe Bidden, in response to his declaration designating Easter Sunday as “Transgender Day of Visibility.” In a campaign event in Wisconsin, Trump suggested that Election Day  in November (on the 5th) be known as “Day of Christian Visibility,” with the hope that Christians will mobilize en masse to defeat Biden.

During his address in Green Bay, Tump expressed his indignation over Biden’s decision, describing it as a total lack of respect for Christians. “What the devil was Biden thinking when he declared Easter Sunday as ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’?”, asked Trump before an enthusiastic crowd.

Earlier, Trump’s campaign had issued a statement condemning Biden’s proclamation, describing it as awful and insulting. Karoline Leavitt, national press secretary of Trump’s campaign, expressed her consternation given the White House’s decision to ban religious designs on Easter eggs in the artistic Easter event and to formalize Easter Sunday as “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

Trump’s campaign team appealed to the Biden Administration to apologize to the millions of Catholics and Christians in the United States who consider Easter Sunday a unique celebration: the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In an attempt to counteract Biden’s declaration, Trump proposed the establishment of “Christian Visibility Day” on November 5, in the hope that Christians will mobilize en masse to express their discontent and their support of traditional values. Trump’s proposal reflects the growing division in American society over questions related to gender identity and religion, and suggests that these controversies will continue being  a burning topic in American politics.
